    Bloody repulsive. Should have left him alone in the first place. Disgusting. All for human or so called human entertainment. Shame on those. Shame. Grotesque

    So sad, so very sad! Who are humans to take animals from the wild! When you see the journey that was undertaken by Keiko for what money! A whale on a plane!!!!!! It’s shocking! The sooner people leave nature as nature and not to make money from the better this world will be!!!

    People decided that Keiko is better free and dead than healthy and happy in captivity. He grew up surrounded with people, don’t have to hunt to eat. Then he was release in the wild, didn’t the people get a clue when he comes back to be with people that he prefers to be with people? I remember these two seals that was rehabilitated by veterinary specialist. Spent lots of money. Then during the time of release, one was eaten by an orca. Maybe they don’t talk orcas anymore. Maybe the Icelandic orcas don’t like him in their pods. Most of the people in captivity(prison) don’t do good when released into the outside world. They go back to prison.
